Over the weekend, one of the most coveted and prestigious award in the music industry, Hip hop World Award was held at Eko Hotel and Suite, Lagos.
With the arena full of excitement as celebrities grace the red carpets, fans and contemporary music lovers awaited the anannoucement of the winners of the award.
The Headies which marks the sixth edition of the award had 58 artiste battling for it. The plague of the award was designed by ACE Awards England while the host are Nollywood diva Rita Dominic and music star Eldee de don.
Although the show started 2 hours late from its original schedule of 8pm some smiled good with more than one award while some like Asa, Terry d rap man, Mocheeah, Eva did not go with any award even though they were nominated.
Wizkid however won this year’s next saved award of the year beating Ty savage, Ice prince and Olamide to the additional Hyundai Sonata given to the winner apart from the award while sir Shina Peters was given the Hall of Fame award for his immense contribution to the music industry.
Hitch at the award:
The award was full of mix-up starting from the opening performance by Olamide instead of Waje as annouced by the presenters. Dr Sid also became fustrated as he could not synchronise with the D.J so he stormed out of the stage and said the “F” word.
The presenters appear not to flow with each other as Rita was nervous on stage. The first award that was annouced was for the Best Rap Single but the display on the screen was for the Best Rap Album.
Inspite of this, the award was a success as the crowd were thrilled with performances by Sir Shina Peters, Sound Sultan, Olamide e.t.c.
